Welcome to Atavion Inc.’s (referred to herein as “Atavion”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) Terms Use and Conditions Agreement (referred to herein as the “Terms” or the “Agreement”). Atavion is a company that was formed for the purpose of helping clients stand out from other competitors with premium, unique, custom-tailored websites.
If you do not agree to these Terms, we ask that you please not use our Website design, creation, and/or maintenance services (“Services”). Your use of our Website or our Services constitutes acceptance of these Terms.
These Terms apply to all users of our website, https://atavion.com/ (“Website”), our mobile website, our social media accounts, or other platforms now in effect or hereinafter created (the “Platform”), and our Services. By using our Platform or purchasing our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
If you are using our Website or our Services on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms on such entity’s behalf and that such entity agrees to be responsible to us if you or the entity violates these Terms.
We reserve the right to modify the contents of these Terms at any time. You agree that it is your responsibility to monitor changes to these Terms. Any modification to these Terms will be notated at the top of these Terms and will be binding as of the time it is posted on our Website.
Finally, all information provided by Atavion while performing the Services is general informational in nature and is not a substitute for legal or other professional advice. If you have a legal or other professional issue, it is recommended that you hire a legal or other professional based on the needs of your issue.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about these terms, please contact us at the email listed in Section 19, below.
Our Services are not meant to be used by anyone under the age of eighteen (18) and we do not target persons under this age to provide our Services.
By using our Services, you represent and warrant that (a) you are at least eighteen (18) years old; (b) your website is not and will not be engaged in any activity that could result in suspension or removal from the Services; (c) you have the full power and authority to enter into these Terms and an agreement with us, and by doing so, will not violate any other agreement to which you or the entity you represent is a party; and (d) you have registered and created a user account with Atavion (the “User Account”).
Before using our Services and becoming a client, we require that you create and maintain a User Account through our Website. It is your responsibility to ensure that your account information is not shared with third parties and is kept private. You are solely responsible for all conduct of any kind that is taken through your User Account, whether or not such conduct is authorized by you or an authorized representative.
By creating a User Account, you hereby represent and warrant that (a) all information provided on a User Account is true to the best of your knowledge; (b) you will not post, upload, or transfer through a User Account any information or content that is owned by a third-party, unless their approval has been sought and received; and (c) you agree to update changes to your User Account in a reasonable timeframe.
Atavion generally does not mediate or oversee any disputes over ownership of a User Account which should be resolved through a neutral third-party, unless such a dispute is clear from submitted documentation. If Atavion becomes aware of a dispute over ownership of a User Account or Website, Atavion reserves the right to terminate Services until resolution of the dispute is presented to Atavion. It is highly recommended that disputes over ownership of a User Account or website be handled amicably.
We offer a variety of services (also “Services”) for our clients including:
All work provided under the Services will be done by Atavion or an agent under the supervision of Atavion. The Services will be based on (a) your ideas, insight, participation, and Submissions by you (pictures, content, themes, etc.); and (b) our professional experience in building, developing, and maintaining websites.
Your website will have closed architecture and you will not have the ability or access to modify anything on your website. All design, maintenance, updates, changes, and anything else provided under the Services will be handled by Atavion under your Subscription Service.
Changes or revisions to your website can be made but are not unlimited and must not be unreasonable. This includes, without limitation: (a) design; (b) copyrighting: (c) development; (d) maintenance; and (e) repair.
If you would like changes that are beyond what we believe is reasonable, this can be purchased for an additional charge outside of the Monthly Subscription Fee (as defined below). If you would like us to provide a service that is outside the scope of the Services, if we are able to provide the additional services, we will be happy to do so at an additional charge outside of the Monthly Subscription Fee.
Once you have signed up for our Services and created a User Account, we can then begin providing the Services. Please be as specific as you would like so that we can provide the highest quality Services to you. You agree to respond to all such requests in a reasonable timeframe.
Any delay in designing, building, creating, or developing your website that is a result of your delay will be solely borne by you.
What’s Included in the Subscription Service:
Building a custom website is not a quick or easy task. Generally, it can take 3-6 weeks to develop a single or multi-page website, and 4-8 weeks to develop an ecommerce website, but these timeframes will depend on the complexity of what you are asking for, as well as your needs/desires.
We can generally provide estimated timeframes for expected completion, however, all timeframes are estimates only and are not guarantees or promises. While we do our best to complete your website with the expected timeframe, delays do happen for a variety of reasons, many of which are out of our control.
Unless otherwise agreed to, we only offer a monthly subscription for the Services (“Subscription Service”). Our offerings in a Subscription Service are more particularly described on our Website at the time of purchase.
WHEN YOU PURCHASE A SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE, WHICH IS CHARGED TO YOU MONTHLY, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE, AGREE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT: (I) ATAVION OR OUR THIRD-PARTY PROCESSOR IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A MONTHLY BASIS FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE FOR AS LONG AS THE SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES; AND (II) YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL CONTINUE IN PERPETUITY UNLESS CANCELLED OR SUSPENDED.
If you want to terminate your Subscription Service, you need to terminate our Services in accordance these Terms. Each Subscription Service is subject to the below provision titled Cancellation & Returns.
All prices shown for the Services are shown in U.S. Dollars. We reserve the right to change our Services or Subscription Service at any time, provided that if we change the amounts or other charges associated with your Services or Subscription Service, we will provide you thirty (30) days advance written notice of such changes. We reserve the right to reject our Services to anyone and for any reason. We also reserve the right to discontinue the Services at any time.
All invoices are due and shall be charged to you around the first day of each new month. Failure to timely pay an invoice for any reason shall accrue interest at one and one half percent (1.5%) per month until paid in full. If your account is past-due, Atavion reserves the right to suspend the Subscription Services and unpublish your website. At any time after the initial thirty (30) day payment period, Atavion can transfer your invoice, account, and any past-due payments to a collection agency or attorney. If your invoice, account, and any past-due payments is transferred to a collection agency or attorney, Atavion shall be entitled to recover all costs and fees in collecting your past-due balance, including all reasonable attorneys’ fees.
All work provided by Atavion will be done by someone in-house or a contractor that we hire as our agent. When you hire Atavion to provide the Services, you are hiring Atavion and not one of our employees, agents, or other workers. We hereby reserve the right to change the person or persons handling the Services for you. Any change in the person or persons handling the Services for you will not entitle you to a reduction in cost, a pause of your Subscription Service, or otherwise.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that you shall not chargeback any payments made to Atavion for any reason, and that any dispute over this Agreement or the Subscription Services must be resolved amicably, otherwise you are free to terminate the Subscription Services at any time. Should you issue a chargeback for any reason, Atavion reserves the right to initiate a claim or demand against you for the full amount of a chargeback. If a chargeback is actually issued by the credit card or financial company, You agrees that Atavion shall be permitted to charge You an administrative fee of five hundred dollars ($500.00) for time spent responding to a chargeback, in addition to interest on the full amount owed to Atavion at one and one half percent (1.5%) per month until paid in full, in addition to all costs and fees, including reasonable attorney’s fees, in pursuing such a claim or action.
Finally, we will include our byline on the footer of your website – “Website Created by Atavion” or “Website by Atavion”. You acknowledge and agree that our byline is, in part, how new clients can find us, and it cannot be removed or hidden from the website.
You may cancel the Subscription Services at any time by. However, since the website is being provided to you on a license basis (see Section 8, below), and is owned exclusively by Atavion, cancellation will not entitle you to keep your website which will be removed from public accessibility. The effective date of your cancellation shall be the end of the paid Subscription Services period. After cancellation, you can request that your Submissions be transferred back to you, or deleted, in your sole discretion.
Atavion can cancel your Subscription Services at any time upon thirty (30) days written notice to you, except that Atavion can cancel your Subscription Services immediately for failure to comply with these Terms.
If your Subscription Services are cancelled or paused, you can reactivate the Subscription Services (subject to Atavion cancelling your Subscription Services) at any time by providing us written notice that you want to: (a) resume your old account and restart your Subscription Services; or (b) sign up for a new account and new Subscription Services. If your Subscription Services are cancelled or paused, we cannot guarantee that if you restart your Subscription Services, that the fees will be the same. This will depend, in part, on the amount of time that your Subscription Services are cancelled or paused.
